The 11th and 12th grade students of the 2015-2016 Museum Studies course at Mid-Pacific Institute used an Artec light scanner to digitally preserve a WWII port running light from the USS Oklahoma. The light, at the National Park Service's Valor In The Pacific museum, was identified by the students in the class as in need of 3D scanning because it was salvaged from the attack on Pearl Harbor. The National Park Service plans to use the students' scan file in a virtual-museum app currently being developed.
